My body ISBN: 9780199109708
Published by O.U.P., 2002
Basic, but clearly produced information about all the different parts of the body, plus general facts about illness, a healthy life style, and how babies are born and grow. Lots of graphics, illustrations, simple experiments and fascinating facts, eg, your heart beats about 70 times a minute, but an elephant's beats only 25 time a minute. Correct names are given for body parts and processes and there is some emphasis on the five senses. A glossary and an index add to the whole, making it particularly useful for schools. It will, however, be very much enjoyed by curious children wherever.
